Chelsea, MI needs an Aldi grocery store
I have been living in Chelsea, MI for over 18 years. I have come to a conclusion that we need another grocery store to both compete with the existing store and bring more food into our town. I have had numerous times where the existing store is out of a 1/3 of the items I need and they are over priced. I believe that if the company, Aldi, brings in their store, that prices would be affordable and there would more food available. I have had numerous friends and acquaintances say they would love to have an Aldi grocery store in our city of Chelsea, MI. Please sign my petition to send to Aldi put an Aldi here.

Phillipsburg Residents Demand "United States Land Resources" to Seek Grocery Store
The residents of Phillipsburg, NJ are demanding that United States Land Resources and property owner, Lawrence S. Berger seek a grocer to replace the original Ahart's Market property on Memorial Parkway in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. As the owner of this property, it is your responsibility to find an interested party. A grocery store in this area is vital to the community as there are many residents who do not have access or the ability to shop elsewhere. The residents of Phillipsburg want a grocery store and no other business as it's replacement. Information from a recent press release from the Mayor of Phillipsburg states, "According to data from the United States Department of Agriculture, 23% of households in parts of Phillipsburg are without a car, and live more than one half mile from a full-service supermarket. This leaves residents who are elderly, disabled, and low-income without easy access to a range of nutrient-rich foods. Without an accessible supermarket, there is an increased risk of dependency on convenience stores and processed foods to meet nutritional needs, which can negatively affect the health and well-being of children and adults." Do what is right for the residents of Phillipsburg by seeking a grocer and no other business for this area.
Petition to Fayetteville City Council
Protect our schools and neighborhood!! Say NO!! to commercial greed!!
Our city, and especially this community surrounding Stoney Point Elementary School and Jack Britt High School, is at a pivotal point - we are growing rapidly in terms of residential and commercial development. The planned outer loop freeway is going to bring the I-95 corridor into our backyards, literally. Developers are greedily salivating to get in on the action, with little to no regard for our community. There is currently a rezoning petition on its way to Fayetteville City Council to clear the 16 acres of tree-and-field filled area wedged between Stoney Point Elementary school and the Wendemere Neighborhood, at the intersection of King/Lakewood and Stoney Point/Rockfish Rds (see map above). The plan is to make way for yet another grocery store. Currently, there is a CVS across the street from this area, a Harris Teeter grocery store also across the street, and a Food Lion less than a mile down along Rockfish Rd. There are a wealth of commercial units and a range of existing retail and services available in the Traemoor Village center, with some units still vacant. There are also existing vacant plots of land waiting for commercial development along King Road, Rockfish Road and Stoney Point Road. Our community has ZERO NEED for another commercial lot and another grocery store in this location. We want to STOP THIS MADNESS of uncontrolled urban sprawl before our community, and Rockfish Road in particular, turn into another Fayetteville eyesore like sections of Raeford Road, Hope Mills Road, or Ramsey Street. We want to keep our elementary school and high school surrounded by fields and trees, not concrete parking lots. Help us fight commercial greed, fight for a say in how our community develops, and, most importantly, keep our children safe from urban sprawl encroaching on their schools. It is well-documented that the I-95 corridor is a sex-trafficking corridor. It is well documented that the City of Fayetteville has a bad problem with underage sex trafficking. We do not want to our children walking through commercial parking lots to get to and from school. We do not want to see the Food Lion on Rockfish Rd turn into a failed, vacant for our kids to travel through. We want to see existing vacant commercial plots with their ugly, desperate, advertising signs being developed BEFORE more land is cleared. If not, how long before families stop coming to this neighborhood for the safety, peace, and great schools?? How long before our school district is not so great??? What about traffic?? What about the fact that we are prone to flooding?? These are not new objections and opinions raised here. Cumberland County has spent much time, money, and effort developing land use plans - the 2030 Growth Vision, the 2010 Cumberland County Land Use Plan, and the 2013 Southwest Cumberland Land Use Plan ALL recommend against commercial encroachment, placing priority on developing sidewalks, infrastructure, and community facilities. The Fayetteville City Zoning commission (chaired by Ben Stout of Stout Construction), voted to allow the rezoning to go through. We have another chance to stop it, by letting the City Council hear our voices NOW before it's too late. Sign this petition to show you care about how our community develops for the sake of all families in the area. Let's keep this a desirable area by making it clear that we will not roll over to commercial greed!! Let's shift this twisted focus on commercial tax dollars back to the families, the children, the schools, the land that makes us so unique. Please stand with us. Thank you.
